An unshakeable and unmeasurable love


God's love bears some of the characteristics of human love - our love being a faint analogy of His
 - otherwise we could not know Him,

but how much greater and richer He is than us!

'Can a woman forget her sucking child,
that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Yea, they may forget,
yet will I not forget thee.
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;'

(Isa. 49.15-16 The promise is originally given to Jerusalem's inhabitants, and applies to all who fear Him)


'Are not five sparrows sold for two denarii,
and not one of them is forgotten before God?
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.'
(Luke 12.6-7, again in the context the promise especially applies to all who follow Him, but in a lesser sense is true of all His handiwork)

'Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution,
or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written,
For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death,
nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8.35-9, even our troubles and trials are used of God for blessing and benefits
of a richness and quality we could not have previously imagined - if only we had eyes to see more clearly!)

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.

(Romans 8.28)
